Little Owl was snuggled up with Mommy Owl sharing a bedtime story. It was late o’clock.
It’s bedtime for Little Owl and his younger brother, but just as his mom leans over to give him one final tuck and a peck on the cheek…
“NO,” said Little Owl. “NO, NO, NO!”
Little Owl does NOT want to go to bed.
He is NOT ready to sleep.
And so the bargaining begins – another story? A glass of water? A nightlight?
Mommy Owl takes this all in stride and helps her little one get the snuggly rest he needs.
This was a lovely little picture book!
The text had a cute story arc – as Little Owl learns about the other animals in the forest and as his mom tucks him into bed.
I thought the frog diversion and the hedgehog adventure were definitely my favorite bits.
The illustrations of this one were absolutely gorgeous. They had a great pallet and lots of lovely detail.
I’m a huge fan of the way the artist interpreted the text and really brought it to life.
All in all, this one gets a double-thumbs-up! So much fun!!
